Widgets not updating on delete of post

Mar 11, 2009 at 4:21 PM
When we are deleting posts from our installation, they are still appearing on the Recent Posts widget. I don't know why the application would work this way. How do we get the Recent Posts widget to act in real time and not display posts that have been deleted. We have to physically go in and make a small adjustment to the web.config file of the application in order to make the widget refresh itself. This is the only way we can get it to display the real posts that are actually active.

How are you deleting posts?  If you're on the blog, logged in and click the 'Delete' button, then that post should disappear from the Recent Posts widget.  At least it does for me in BE 1.4.5 and the latest build 25892.

If you're deleting posts manually out of the data store (deleting the XML files or deleting the post directly out of the database), then the Recent Posts widget (and the entire BlogEngine application) isn't going to be aware of this.
